I attended the symposium to get
a better idea of what I need to be doing in order to make myself a more competitive
candidate in the job market. I am interested in the Research-1
jobs but the reality is that of my cohort of 8 students I bet only 2 of us get
tenure-track R-1 gigs and the rest of us should have some Plan Bs and Cs ready
when the University of [insert state name] doesn’t call back.
